Mystery Monday and CPS...

I created this card for the Club Anya mystery Monday challenge... using Heather's fun Sketchy, Sparkly, DSP recipe (which I have already uploaded it to my gallery) and I used the fabulous sketch 138 on card positioning systems but turned it on it's side.

One decorative scrap paper was a tricky one for me I'm hoping I got away with the tiny extra I used for the paper piecing as it's the same colours just glittered. The core'dinations cardstock for the base I have sanded the edges to let the blue through. The leaves are cut using the coloured side of the core'dinations as is the tag.

Mermaid Anya just HAD to be glittered... her hair flowing in the water LOL! I have paper pieced and coloured the rest with copic markers and my favourite Spica glitter pen. I've cut her out and instead of raising her on foam pads I used some plastic packaging which I heated ever so slightly to press around a large pen to create a curve. You should be able to click on the thumbnail below for a close look.


Supplies: Patterned Paper: My Mind's Eye: laundry line; Core'dinations: whitewash; 10'tations; Stamps: TGF: Mermaid Anya; my guy (sentiment) Ink: Memento: Black; Copic: markers; Spica; Dies: Sizzix: jelly tags; branch and leaves; Nestabilities: ovals; WRMK: corner chomper; Other: adhesive jewels; stones; glossy accents; glass pebbles; plastic packaging; 3D foam; Clear foam pads;
Thanks for stopping by, there's still a little time to have a go at this weeks challenge. Have a wonderful weekend, HuGs Kim :)
